A Fog Covered Cemetery

One morning, I looked out the window to see a particularly thick layer of fog covering the 
ground. My first thought was "To the cemetery!" 

I've always found cemeteries to be peaceful; a quiet place to wander around, seldom running into anybody else. A good place to think about anything, and everything. All of life's silly little problems seem to slip to the back of the mind.

The fog hung like a thick blanket. It felt like I was in my own tiny world.

Philosophers have long recommended that we spend more time in cemeteries. To help us appreciate, and understand the fragileness of life. It  was a man named Heidegger who said "To get in touch with life, we must first, get in touch with death."


  1. Hahaha I wouldn't be going to a cemetery because thick fog on the
    ground: stay at home with a tea and cookies :P
    Though, you did make a great picture series of it c: Xx

  2. Amazing! I just want to grab my camera and head down to our cemetery, except that it's dark outside and I'm missing that fantastic fog you've got! I love fog! I've hardly seen this winter!

    Fog and cemeteries go hand in hand, it adds so much atmosphere to the photos. These really are gorgeous.

  3. Love this photos ;)


  4. Wow, I love this kind of place, they're a great inspiration for me! (:


  5. The combination of the location and fog makes for such intriguing pictures...such a good feeling of being in your own world for a little while.

  6. Wow those are some outstanding & other worldly photos. That cemetery really is one of the most interesting gothic lovely places I've ever seen. And your reflection on life & death is spot on. It helps to remember what is really important. Xo ♡ mom

  7. I love cemeteries! I still want to work there or a morgue (my "weird kid" is showing, isn't it?). Those photos are so pretty! They would also look fun in Black and white to hang for Halloween! :D
